The Process of Cargo Ship Fumigation

When transporting cargo from foreign shores, there is a high chance of Stored Product Insects (SPIs) such as beetles, weevils, mites and moths being transported from one country to another. This can present its own set of challenges and is in fact, how in the UK, we have ended up with many species of animals and insects that were not originally indigenous to these shores. In order to prevent more unwanted guests, professional cargo ship fumigation is required.

Fumigation to prevent the transportation and transfer of exotic organisms.

It is a requirement with most countries now that a fumigation certificate is presented before transporting or unloading goods. It is imperative that goods are shipped without the risk of contamination. There are several methods used that will vary depending on the countries being transported to and from and the cargo being transported.

Popular methods of fumigation

Container and Commodity fumigation means that you can spray the cargo to control the risk of a pest infestation. You can also fumigate the containers in which they were transported. Where foodstuffs are concerned this is especially important. the process used will largely depend on the goods to be fumigated.

Different products must be used for foodstuffs than can be used for other cargo for example. For example, the most common method of fumigation involves loading the cargo, spraying the goods with gases and then closing the doors so that the gases can circulate. This is not allowed in the case of certain foods. Where foods are concerned, it has become more popular to wrap the foods in plastic packaging and crates, pallets etc.

Professional, licensed fumigation services

Effective fumigation must be carried out safely and effectively by professionals that know what they are doing. The equipment used must be effective and approved and those handling it must be licensed. For further details about the cargo fumigation services that we offer, get in touch with us on 01752 929292.

I was extremely pleased with Falcon Environmental Services. They were efficient, reliable, friendly and professional. I was happy that I found a local company to help with the problem of pests in my attic. They were always available to talk to explaining the situation to me and how they were going to deal with it. I really felt that they went over, above and beyond what I expected. Nothing was too much trouble, my calls and enquiries always returned with a friendly voice, care and consideration. I would honestly recommend them and use their company again if the need arises. It’s very comforting to find good, reliable professional people you can rely on. Thank you to everyone at FALCON.
